My Little Empire Review
This film was in a lot of “Top 5 Irish movie of the year lists”. I was afraid it was going to be a bid “stage Irish” i.e. stiff and looks like they are on a stage. I was pleasantly surprised and all in all it was very well acted and there are some really gruesome scenes as well. Darren Healy (Disco Pigs, Crush Proof) play the lead for witch he does a great job. This certainly goes further that any other Irish film in acting and in violence. Not you typical Irish film and I liked that about it.
